END key not working!
The button just stopped working one day and now I have to pull the battery out to end a call...Super annoying.
I was thinking of taking it apart, maybe there's something stuck?
Any help would be much appreciated!

I mentioned this in another thread:
It sounds like it could be a similar but slightly different symptom caused by some type of ground issue with the buttons. If it is, then holding the end button while touching the send button should get it to respond.
I think it's some sort of ground issue.

It's a hardware issue. Happens to most torches eventually, especially 9860 over the 9850. DO NOT get a replacement phone, you'll end up with the same issue after a few months. Get it repaired. Trust me, 2 weeks of repair time is worth it in the end. Much snappier after you get it back.

My End Call button doesn't work 95% of the time and it pisses me off especially when I dial someone by mistake. I just had to pull the battery just to end a stupid call. My original Storm may have been a POS when it came to specs but I didn't get the frequent 30 second busy icon, can end a call on a dime, and played music/vids consistently w/o the process is busy error.
I used to be able stick up for BB phones bc they could do the basic functions well but I can't even do that anymore.

I almost went nuts last week trying to find a solution to this.
Here it goes:
As many blackberrys don't have the End Call option in the menu, here's what you can do:
In the keyboard options, you can choose the "Manage Connections" option for one of the Convenience Keys on either side of the Blackberry.
This way, every time you need to end a call, you press that side button, and you disconnect all the connections. Your call will end instantly. It's very easy and simple to put the connection back on, and certainly much faster than removing the battery!

...have a Torch 9860 that all of a sudden stopped ending calls. Do not go crazy about it, it is NOT a hardware key issue, it's software. Actually mine started doing it after upgrading to the latest 7.1 bundle 2061. Proof of the hardware working is that the key DOES work when exiting an application. Planning on downgrading mine, as soon as I do I'll post the results...
Happy 2013 to everyone!!!

Since I did the software upgrade to OS 7.1 bundle 2108 (v22.214.171.1246), I seem to occasionally have issues with hanging up at the end of a phone call.
I was also wondering if the key was having issues - now I'll be able to verify if the key is beeping next time it happens. So far it is beeping everytime I press it.Patrick from Calgary
